Auditing Courses at MTS

Have you ever wanted to sit in on a seminary class and gain some theological education but not worry about doing homework, taking exams, or writing papers?

Members of the community (and current students, too) are welcome to audit any master’s level course on the course schedule(s) (see below).

If you have a desire to learn and to participate in theological education but not to earn academic credit, you should consider this option.

Auditors attend the scheduled classes and learn alongside other students, but are not responsible for assignments.

The fee to audit is $425 per course. MTS alumni (up to 2 courses) and persons over 65 years of age can pay at the discounted rate of $225 per course.

All courses through at least Fall 2020 are online, so we hope you take advantage of this special opportunity to participate in a seminary classroom!
